Mountain pine beetle population forecast survey results

Description

Surveys of mountain pine beetles are conducted annually between mid-May and mid-June at a number of sites across Alberta to predict how successfully local beetle populations may spread in the upcoming year. The results of these surveys, combined with aerial surveys and ground assessments conducted in August/September, help the province prioritize areas for single tree treatment and timber harvest control tactics implemented in the fall and winter.
